IR Seminar - Beyond governance? A look at how shifting models in markets threaten transparency

This half day seminar, moderated by Richard Davies - Managing Director of RD:IR will explore the effectiveness of the equity capital markets, including the rise of private equity and debt as a source of alternative funding. How does technology play its part in capital raising? Will blockchain technology provide a mechanism to bring everyone to the highest degree of accountability; and are cryptocurrencies the money of the future?
